Scottish Engineering Leaders Award

This year some of our pupils entered the Scottish Engineering Leaders Award.  Congratulations to Sandy Widdop (P6), Rose Marie Murray (P4) and Christopher Bowerman (P3), their invention designs were shortlisted and went on public display at Barony Hall in Glasgow.

Christopher’s drawing of his “Protection Drone” invention on display in Glasgow .  A drone that keeps away burglars and sounds an alarm if intruders are near.

The Primary Engineer Leaders Awards and the Scottish Engineering Leaders Award asks children, pupils and students…

Designed and managed by Primary Engineer Programmes to provide an opportunity for children and pupils to interview engineers about their career paths and motivation, it has evolved into a creative problem solving, literacy and entrepreneurial project which annually involves over 23,800 pupils.

As pupil’s interview engineers and research engineering in general they are encouraged to look at the world around them to find problems an engineered solution could solve. Alongside their annotated drawings an accompanying letter is required to persuade engineers to choose their design to build. Links to The University of Strathclyde, The University of Southampton, Manchester Metropolitan University and UCL annually see these pupil’s dreams realised.

Every entry is graded by engineers and educationalists, all entries receive named certificates, shortlisted entries form part of regional public exhibitions and winners are presented Trophies.
